Critic Reviews for Revenge of the Ninja

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Revenge of the Ninja appropriates part of its form from the then-voguish slasher ("What is this, Halloween?", a character is heard to ask), and part from the gangster flick.

January 17, 2016 | Full Review…

Director Sam Firstenberg delivers an exceedingly hit-and-miss actioner that remains unable, generally speaking, to become the enthralling work he's obviously intended...

November 17, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

B-movie action fans will appreciate the absurd plot turns and awful dialogue alongside its genuinely cool stunt work ... This is essential '80s cheese.

Audience Reviews for Revenge of the Ninja

This was a really enjoyable ninja action drama film. The fighting is excellent, the story is good, not perfect, but good, and the cast isn't bad either. It might not be the most original plot, but with all the good action, it didn't matter.
